COVID-19 update – We are returning to competitive football!!!

It is good news that competitive football activity can now take place at Deeping United FC with the necessary modifications to mitigate the transmission risk of COVID-19.  However, the FA strongly recommends a phased return to competitive football activity.  With that in mind, we will:

  • From 28th July 2020 - Begin competitive training, with the overall group size (inclusive of coaches) being limited to 30 people

  • From 1st August 2020  – Participate in competitive matches, for example pre-season fixtures, festivals and small-sided football competitions

  • From September – Play league games.


However, returning to competitive football is at the discretion of parents/carers and coaches of each team.

In accordance with FA’s guidelines, we have updated our guidance to ensure we are thoroughly prepared.  All Players, coaches, volunteers and parents/carers should familiarise themselves with this and must undertake the relevant actions.


From 24th September 2020 new guidelines will be introduced around track and trace.  Deeping United FC will be providing a QR scan code which should be used to register your attendance at either our Deeping or Baston locations.

Deeping United FC has already received a unique QR Code for each of its locations and these will be available to view at the entrance..

Visitors will need to download the NHS COVID-19 App. which is available for both Android and IOS platforms.  You will only need to download once.  You should use this App. to scan the QR Code which will automatically log your attendance.  You will need to scan for each of your visits to our locations.

In the event that you do not own a smart mobile device, the club will provide an alternative method of logging your attendance.

The NHS has developed some guidance around the use of the new QR Code and can be found by clicking the link below
